I’m happy to share with you that the final, complete version of our Vision 2020 St. Paul’s Strategic Plan is now available!  As you may recall, we “rolled out” the Plan in May with discussions after each service.  Since then, we have begun the implementation process.  The implementation of the Plan is a call that we all share.
